Welcome the winter season with a 2013 Silver Holiday Wreath from the Royal Canadian Mint. This special edition coin features a beautiful evergreen wreath, wrapped in ribbon with a large and festive bow.
The .9999 pure silver coin comes with added pop, featuring FIVE Swarovski elements neatly placed across the wreath. The blue and gold crystals glisten against the silver coin, representing the fruit and berries traditionally woven into holiday wreaths. It is inscribed with the words CANADA and 20 DOLLARS 2013 around the rim.
The obverse features the stately portrait of Canada’s monarch, along with ELIZABETH II and D G REGINA near the rim.
Traditionally, holiday wreaths are constructed from local foliage, particularly evergreen boughs. Pine trees, holly, blue spruce and other conifers remain green throughout the cold season and are used as symbols of eternity and strength.
The circular shapes of wreaths reinforces an eternal perspective on the Holiday Season. Harvest and funeral wreaths have been used as decorations for thousands of years, and several types are incorporated into cultural traditions, particularly at Christmas, when they are hung on festive doors.
The 2013 Holiday Wreath has a limited mintage of only 10,000 coins — which means collectors will be knocking at our doors to get a wreath of their own. Purchase yours from Provident Metals while supplies last.
